Paralympian kept active by Ottobock ‘stimulation system’

Paralympic archer Dave Phillips has adopted a stimulation system manufactured by Ottobock to allow him to ‘walk normally’ and compete without the use of his wheelchair or mobility scooter.

Phillips, 52, of Cwmbrân, South Wales, has been wearing the L300 Go system on his leg since becoming an Ottobock ambassador following the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games.

The system, which the user wears around the thigh and the top of the calf, stimulates the muscles to lift the foot while walking. This is designed to make walking smoother and ultimately safer.
